Part of an ongoing series of events focused on creativity in the digital age, the MIT Conference on Digital Cinema brings together filmmakers, critics, and media industry leaders to explore the nature of digital cinema and its cultural significance. The conference will combine screenings of significant works in digital cinema with panel discussions centered on such issues as the political consequence of broadening media access, the shifting status of amateur filmmaking, the aesthetics of this emerging media form, the economics of digital film production and distribution, the historical antecedents of digital cinema, and the ways in which digital cinema may influence our media future.

The MIT Conference on Digital Cinema is sponsored by, the MIT Comparative Media Studies Program, and the MIT Communications Forum.
